The life is a succession of days, months, seasons and years. Precession of the equinox is a much slower cycle, that seems more of a civilization cycle : the ages. And I should have talked about Virgo too : harvest and the seeds of life to survive through winter.
Virgo is just that : the task to preserve summer life through winter. Sebastien — I am in the choir in the Church of the Sun so I really do appreciate your take most poetic on this. It is important, I think, to put this constellation bit to rest — the mythology of it and the idea that there is an influence that established meaning from these fixed stars that are very very far away — much farther than the planets and of course, the luminaries. I think the mythological correlation to the constellations needs to be defined in both systems in order to get to the crux of this.
I think it is about time that practicing astrologers know and can explain why they use the system they use. I celebrate the relatively recent serious examination of the history of astrology. I think it is an important scholarly work that can only help with those who use it for reflection or counseling. It is important to know how we interface with the cosmos, most especially now since we are moving toward a more agnostic perspective and out of the Judeo Christian paradigm.
Happy Sun Day day without sleeves! In this world, the Sun and the Moon are the King and the Queen. They are the most important celestial objects for us.
They rule Summer : Cancer and Leo. Opposed to these two are Capricorn and Aquarius, both ruled by Saturn.
I see Saturn as the Dark Lord he is far from the Sun and he wears a crown — the rings.

Precession of equinox seems to me as a big slower clock that is not related to the daily human life on Earth.
People will see it as Author Name with your public flash cards. I would love to just hear the two systems explained in a way that shows why they are both valid, and how the characteristics of the zodiac sign became established and how that influence can be true for both systems if the constellations are no longer in sync with the Tropical zodiac the way they were originally.

Mmaybe astrology has a big role to play in this coming world? They obtained this knowledge from the stars. To my mind they contrive their year much more cleverly than the Greeks, for these last every other year intercalate a whole month, but the Egyptians, dividing the year into twelve months of thirty days each, add every year a space of five days besides, whereby the circuit of the seasons is made to return with uniformity. The Egyptians, they went on to affirm, first brought into use the names of the twelve gods, which the Greeks adopted from them; and first erected altars, images, and temples to the gods; and also first engraved upon stone the figures of animals.
In most of these cases they proved to me that what they said was true. The Egyptians have also discovered more prognostics than all the rest of mankind besides. Whenever a prodigy takes place, they watch and record the result; then, if anything similar ever happens again, they expect the same consequences.
